Hadleys at Number One

Serving fresh, seasonal cuisine crafted from locally sourced ingredients, Hadleys at Number One specialises in modern and traditional dishes with a creative twist. Try tempting starters like chicken, bacon and sun-dried tomato terrine with salad and fruity chutney, and tasty mains, including pan-roasted duck breast on a bed of butternut squash with orange and star anise jus. Hadleys’s popular breakfasts – think full English breakfasts and freshly baked croissants – are served daily, and on Sundays guests flock to sample the restaurant’s delicious, traditional roast dinners.


What could sum up seaside town dining better than traditional fish and chips? Head on down to Papa’s for some of Weston-super-Mare’s most popular. Choose from battered cod, haddock, plaice or skate all dished up with a hearty portion of chips, and served alongside other chippy classics like scampi; for the more adventurous, Papa’s cod roe comes highly recommended. Papa’s also serves fare like burgers and fresh pies, and diners can customise their meal with extra sides, including mushy peas, baked beans and pickled egg.

Demetris Taverna

Demetris Taverna is a traditional Greek restaurant. It’s the perfect place for an evening of authentic Greek food like the sheftalia starter (a traditional Cypriot sausage made with pork and spices) and Demetris’s specialty main, anixiatikon – lamb slow-cooked with oregano, feta, mushrooms, brandy and cream. Finish off with a glass of ouzo for the perfect accompanying aperitif.

Il Michelangelo

For some of Weston-super-Mare’s best Italian food, Il Michelangelo’s is a popular choice. Using only the finest, freshest ingredients, Il Michelangelo’s team of native Italian chefs craft tempting dishes like tagliatelle gamberoni with king prawns, spring onions, cherry tomato sauce and a touch of chilli. Of course, the meal wouldn’t be complete unless topped off with a classic Italian dessert: homemade tiramisu or chocolate cream-filled profiteroles topped with white chocolate sauce should do nicely.

The Grove Bistro

The Grove Bistro has gained a loyal clientele for its relaxed ambience and delicious, affordable fare. Its menu is simple and concise: try the oven-baked pear with goat’s cheese and cherry drizzle starter; the grilled pork loin steak main with pink peppercorn and brandy sauce; and the strawberry filo tower dessert (layers of strawberries, cream and sugared filo pastry with a lemon zest sauce). Popular with the pre-theatre crowd, The Grove Bistro is just a short walk away from The Playhouse.


Indian Masala

From beautiful biryanis and bhunas to tasty tikka and tandoori – it’s no wonder that Panache is one of Weston-super-Mare’s best-loved Indian restaurants. A sleek and modern dining room welcomes guests to sample a range of all-time favourites like kormas, jalfrezis and vindaloos. Fans of spice will love the nag curry made with fiery naga chilli, while the tangy satkora, made with Bangladeshi citrus fruit, is another tempting option. A good few vegetarian specials, including banaras aloo (potatoes, peas and chickpeas in a spicy sauce), are also served.


Duets is a local go-to for fine dining venue with a distinct European twist. Classy but cosy, Duets’s understated, chic dining room sets the tone for sampling exquisitely crafted dishes like pancetta-wrapped breast of guinea fowl with a tarragon and pistachio stuffing, served on sauteed spring greens, or the sun-dried tomato risotto with broad beans, asparagus, truffle oil and parmesan shavings. Weekly fish specials made with produce from Brixham Fish Market in neighbouring Devon include dishes like grilled sea bass with lemon butter and samphire, and popular roast dinners are served on Sundays.


Tarantella is a popular, family-run restaurant specialising in Italian cuisine. Start with the antipasto misto (a plate brimming with Italian bites like Parma ham, salami, peppers, mozzarella, olives and sun-dried tomatoes) before moving on to a hearty pasta or pizza main – the tagliatelle with smoked salmon in a creamy tomato sauce and the ham, mushroom, tomato and mozzarella-stuffed calzone are two tempting options.

The Milton Larder

The Milton Larder – a family-run cafe specialising in locally sourced grub – has carved itself a niche in Weston-super-Mare’s dining scene. The Milton Larder is the perfect stop-off for a breakfast or a light lunch, with a menu of regular dishes complemented by daily specials like soups and burgers. Diners with a sweet tooth are in luck, too: The Milton Larder serves homemade cakes and other treats baked fresh daily, with regularly rotating options such as coffee and walnut cake or sticky toffee pudding.
